good evening.
9:01pm
i'm dan ashley. start tonight with the developing story. new details in a child abduction case still unsolved after more than two decades. my kayla was kidnapped in 1988 and was 9 years old at the time. hayward police are testing a child's bones found in san joaquin county. they found the bones in the graves used by the so called speed killer. sherman time says there are many more victims buried in graves. earlier this year he said his partner may have killed mikayla garrett. we spoke to her mother and you will hear from her tonight over on channel 7 so tune in for that. now, to other developing news. 12-year-old girl shot and being treated in an apparently random shooting that happened this evening in oakland east oakland on 64th and harmon avenue. you can see the yellow markers
9:02pm
were bullets fell. this is crime scene evidence. we understand the 12-year-old suffered non-life-threatening injuries. investigators say she was sitting in a car with a family member or family friend. neither one was targeted. it was apparently a random shooting and she was caught up in it. again this 12-year-old girl we he expect to be okay at least that is the very good news on that. in san francisco tonight, police moved in when a group took over a vacant building in the mission disstrict. the whole thing was captured live on abc 7 news at 6:00. jonathan blum was reporting on the takeover when things brook loose. >> the police bass out no trespassing signs and now are gathering with riot helmets preparing to surround these guys if they don't disburse. the police have now run across the street and they are wasting no time to arrest these protesters. they are yelling to get out of the street and we are trying to comply with their orders as the
9:03pm
police go hand to hand with the protesters. more officers come in on their bicycles and they very quickly surround the area to create a perimeter around what they have now declared a crime scene. motorcycle officers are running in. >> the protest coincided with world homeless action today. police arrested 20 people but all of this transpired live on the 6:00 news over on channel 7. major news in a murder case. police in seattle arrested two people who were driving the car belonging to a woman murder in her hercules home. they were wanted for a violent west coast crime spree that began in southern california when darnell, washington, broke out of jail in august. two days later darnell is suspected of shooting a sheriff's deputy. in seattle when an officer approached the two they took off. after a chase the officers boxed this them in and the
9:04pm
driver tried to ram the patrol cars. the vehicle involved belonged to susi kob a murdered woman who was found beaten and stabbed to death over the weekend. this is a significant development in the investigation. well, an unusual october storm dumped hail in gilroy today across the bay area. hail scattered across the street. pretty dramatic picture. spencer christian has been tracking it on radar. fairly rare for this time of year, spencer. >> very unusual, you are right. we still have some of the unusual weather rumbling around the bay area right now. a rather wide path of showers and thundershowers. much of this is light activity but there are likely heavy downpours and a couple of thunderstorm cells near fairfield. the movement over the last couple hours starting in the central valley and moving
9:05pm
westward into the immediate bay area. and let me close in on the active weather around fairfield right now. actually just south of fairfield and west of real vista moving towards vallejo. a couple of little cells producing no doubt heavy downpours and fund and lightning as well. we had hail this afternoon over much of the bay area accompanying the thunderstorms. this video sent to us by natalie dominguez. and then here is more video showing rain and hail sent to us by roy flowers. most of the activity was in the south bay. we had hail reported in morgan hills, gilroy, san jose. and this picture was sent also of hail collecting on the ground in morgan hill. nice sized hail stone there's. much larger than well, we don't get hayloften in the bay area any way. larger than the hail we would normally get when we do get
9:06pm
hail. here are is a handful of hail someone picked up in morgan hill as well. thunderstorms developing in other locations. i will give you a look at what is coming our way tomorrow and the next day in my accuweather he is ren day forecast a little bit later. george gascone says he has grave concerns about mirkarimi's ability to do his job while he is on probation. he d.a. says mirkarimi must take steps to avoid a conflict of interest. >> i'm calling on ross mirkarimi to reduce simself from duties that relate to domestic violent offenders. >> tough words and it is against that backdrop p that ross mirkarimi try to retake the reins of the sheriff's
9:07pm
offense. vic lee with a look at the challenges he will face. supporters cheered when suspended sheriff ross mirkarimi got his job back last night. the mayor needed nine votes to sustain the suspension and got only 7. today, mirkarimi showed up at his offense to discuss the transition of power with the acting sherrod martin sheriff. e said he also wants to mend fences with advocates of domestic violence victims. >> i absolutely want to reach out and plan to in a direct and personal way with any of the leaders of domestic violence community and any one else who may have doubt or concern about us being able to move forward. >> reporter: the supervisors who voted against the suspension were campos, avalos, ara gq and kim. domestic violence advocates were stunned by their decision. >> common sense thinking folks,
9:08pm
i believe, it just doesn't make sense that you would have a convicted domestic violence abuser leading the sheriff's department. >> i'm disappointed at these four individual supervisors who i think found their way to find an excuse. >> when the mayor was asked if he would support a recall he declined to answer yes or no. >> i know that had been discussed among private settings in the past and that is the public prerogative to consider that. >> supervisor kim said she voted to give ross mirkarimi his job back because she thinks they failed to make the case this was official misconduct but would is support a recall election. >> i think a recall is the way to remove the sheriff. i don't think that unfortunately the removal process by the simple language of the charter i felt didn't
9:09pm
allow us to do this last night. >> reporter: mirkarimi will still be on probation for three more years while sheriff and still can't carry a gun but does get his back pay. in case you are wondering how much all of this cost the city attorney's offense i office inl fees, it is is $1.2 million. vic lee, abc 7 news. sports is making news tonight santa rosa cyclist levi leipheimer has been suspended. he is banning for taking part in what it calls the most sophisticated professionalized and successful doping program the sport has seen and at the center of the program says the government lance armstrong based on 1,000 pages of testimony, lab results and financial transactions the agency says that armstrong used drugs while cycling and

9:24pm
9:25pm
overseas for a couple of items. the united states is sending troops to jordan to boltster its military. turkish fighter jets forced a passenger plane to land in the turkish capital of ankara. military communications devices were con skated and the air bus was given permission to leave. it was traveling with 35 passages and two crew aboard. tensions have been high since five turk irk civilians were killed by mortar fire last week. the example of thcaptain o7 that ran aground is now
9:26pm
attempting to get his job back. the night his ship ran aground, he says his dismissal is unfair because he was not under command of the ship when it hit a rock. he is under investigation for manslaughter, abandoning his ship and failing to properly communicate with maritime authorities. next month, state voters will decide whether to scale back the three strikes law. it would revise three strike felonies to serious or violent crimes only. if it passes about 2700 inmate can be riesen tensed and likely will. three strikes allows prosecutors to press for 25 years to life sentences for any one with a third felony conviction. tonight, capital correspondent nannette miranda takes a look at both sades of the issue. the first two offenses have to be serious or violent crimes. the third does not.
9:27pm
critics say that is a gross injustice. having more than 3,600 inmates in the state lockup for 25 years to life for relatively minor crimes like drug possession and shop lifting a pair of socks as the third strike. >> proposition 36 only applies to extraordinarily minor are crimes. it is a modest reform that restores the original intent of the three strikes law to target serious and violent offenders. >> proposition 36 seeks to change the law so that the third crime must also be serious and violent. the three strikes project uses the example of shane taylor whose 15 years into a life sen tones. third strike, possession of less than $10 of meth. his prior offenses were burglary and attempted burglary. if it wasn't for the third strike he would probably have been released after 8 to 10 years. if prop 36 passes he would be eligible to have his case reviewed by a judge for possible resentencing and
9:28pm
release. >> if it is child molest, murder rape and child molest. >> rob: you get don't the benefit of prop 36 no matter how minor the third offense it. >> the state could save $100 million a year by having fewer inmates in prison. the father of the three strikes law sounds the alarm says if they committed two violent crimes it is only a matter of time before the third time strikes. >> while they are out during the little crime sabbaticals think of the little crimes they were doing to society including the murder of my 18-year-old daughter. >> reynolds feels that criminals will receive shorter sentences if prop 36 is is approve. >> should he be provided with an opportunity to do yet
9:29pm
another serious or violent crime? that is what i want to ask you. >> reporter: in sacramento, nannette miranda, abc 7 news. coming up, exploding air bags. the warning for all drivers about the danger in the dash board and what you really need too know. the car of the future is already here. the new collaboration between silicon valley and one of the bigger
9:30pm
9:31pm
9:32pm
an alarming warning about the air bags in your car. the national highway traffic safety administration is warning about counterfeit air bags installed by repair shops.
9:33pm
they look like the real thing but they are not and they can be dangerous. david curly has the story. >> reporter: this air bag supposed to save your life explodes, fire shooting out of the steering wheel. a founder fit. here it is again. the fake literally shooting parts and flames right at the driver. or this bag another fake that only partially inflates. customs agents were spotting fakes and when the tests of the suspected chinese made counterfeits came back the alert went out. >> when people try to think about counterfeiting having largely to do with whether somebody is selling a boot leg dvd. we are dealing in a completely different world now. this summer in charlotte backs of the fakes were confiscated in a raid. some sold on the internet and other os to repair shops. >> this is only an issue if the air bag has deployed and you have to have it replaced. go to an authorized dealer and make sure you get the real deal. >> less than a quarter million
9:34pm
vehicles may be affect. if you are not sure you have a real replacement have a dealership check your current air bag. if you drive a toyota you may have to take it in to the shop soon. toyota issued a massive new recall bigger than the one two years ago because of a faulty power window switch. it was not greased properly at the factory and 200 people reported a problem. a 7.5 million vehicles were karled. we have specifics under see it on tv so go there to check to make sure it is not one of our vehicles. your home, your office, your mobile device, all are connected but what about your car. jonathan blum explains why one of the world's biggest automakers is now linked to the world's biggest computer networking company. >> you have a meter on here. >> reporter: bill leinart is
9:35pm
showing off an all electric car that you will probably never drive. >> this is not intended for sale. it is for experimental purposes. >> the scion is a concept car, a platform to try out technologies for the next generation of connected vehicles. >> not just our smart phones and tablets but everything in our lives are going to be internet enabled and that is in fact happening as we speak and the connected vehicle is the next big rerevolution in mobility. >> cisco is is holding an invitation mighting with vehicle manufacturers. >> the carnies as a result of my cell phone who is getting in the car. my wife likes classical and i like jazz. doesn't have to play jazz when she is in the car, only does it for me. >> the executives agree this is only the beginning. some of the same technology used for safety and navigation features in this car could end up paving the way for whole cities full of cars that drive
9:36pm
themself it will be a lot easier if the car companies and networking companies start working together now to make is city streets ready for the technology. >> putting in for things that don't exist now but that you know they are coming. >> automakers are already showing off cars that talk to each other to avoid crashes though they say a fully driverless car is at least ten years away from the dealership. meantime, connected city streets will have other benefits. >> the network has sensors in the roadway or the parking space that the internet can tell my vehicle it is time to park because there is not going to be a parking space after the sensor established there is a free spot. >> in san francisco, jonathan blum, abc 7 news. something else wild is the weather throughout tonight. show you pictures from live doppler 7 hd where there are

9:38pm
former massachusetts governor ahead 45% to president obama's 44%. the next presidential debate is tuesday but again the vice presidential candidates debate tomorrow night and you can see that on abc 7. >> to that end as we talk about the presidential race, president obama seems to have no enthusiasm for reviewing notes from his performance in last week's debate that so many criticized. the president compares it to playing sports. >> if you have a bad game you just move on. you look forward to the next one and it makes you that much more determined. >> and he will no doubt be determined next week to perform better at the debate against mitt romney. mitt romney told a factory audience his passion was about helping people who are struggling and he also said he will be a prolife president. thathat comes one day after he told an iowa newspaper he has told an iowa newspaper he has no abortion agenda if [ woman ] don't forget the yard work!
